I mostly do civil litigation, and I frankly have failed to see much if any difference between our Federal judges who have been appointed in by Democrats as opposed to Republicans. It may be because the practice of law is always local, but at least on tort litigation, in at least some states, the Conservative v. Liberal appointees are indistinguishable in that respect.

The differences that do appear seem to be regional, more than political. At the circuit level judges from various regions are more or less conservative, but that's the case irrespectice of their political party.

I don't practice criminal law, but that seems to be the case with criminal law here as well. There's little difference between their overall behavior.

To add, is it really possible to predict what a Supreme Court Justice will be like? It seems that the predictions are rarely accurate.
